Parashat Sh’lach 5788 / פָּרָשַׁת שְׁלַח־לְךָ

/ 23 Sivan 5788

Parashat Sh’lach is the 37th weekly Torah portion in the annual Jewish cycle of Torah reading.

Torah Portion: Numbers 13:1-15:41

Shelach (“Send”) tells the story of Israelite spies journeying into Canaan, the negative report they bring back, and the resulting punishment decreed upon the Israelites: to wander and die in the desert over forty years. It ends with laws about sacrifices, the story of a man who desecrates Shabbat, and the commandment to wear ritual fringes. [1]
